There is a Queen who weaves in the sky
See how She spins, see Her finger fly


She's been before us from beginning to end
She is our mother, lover and friend


She is the weaver and we are the web
She is the needle and we are thread


Lady Frigg never leaves us on the line
Through Her Love we're always doing fine!
